I am Dave Terruso
Above you can see a picture of the entire front of my head, the front of my neck, and a good portion of the top of my chest and shoulders. The rest of me is just more of the same; I didn’t crop the picture to hide a robotic or octopusian rest-of-body.
I’m 33 years old and I live on Earth. (I wrote this in January of 2013, so depending on how many years later than that you’re reading this, add numbers to things where applicable.) I enjoy eggs, cookies, poker, fart jokes, and reading. I do not enjoy most cheeses, pain, wearing suits, and the movie Gothika.
I am a novelist/screenwriter. I studied creative writing under Justin Cronin, PEN/Hemingway Award-winning author of The Passage.
I am also a stand up comedian. I work at Helium Comedy Club in Philadelphia, where I have opened for acts including Dana Gould, Charlie Murphy, and Richard Lewis.
I am also a sketch comedian. My sketch comedy duo Animosity Pierre have been praised by TIME Magazine and the Preston and Steve Morning Show. We were official selections of the 2010 Chicago Sketchfest and the 2010 San Francisco Sketchfest.
I also co-founded Philly Sketchfest, now in its fifth year. I also co-founded Comedy Month, the largest festival in Philadelphia dedicated solely to comedy.
